This past week the LPGA Tour was in Thailand for the Honda LPGA Thailand, the PGA Tour was in North Carolina for the Wells Fargo Championship.
Over in Thailand the leaderboard was tight and it was exciting down the stretch, Ariya Jutanugarn came out with the win! Ariya became the first Thai golfer to win in her home country! Ariya and her sister grew up in Thailand working extremely hard on their golf games and it has paid off greatly for them. Her older sister Moriya finished nine shots back in a tie for 17th. Another young Thai golfer on the LPGA Tour is Patty Tavatanikit, Patty won the ANA Inspiration last month and has been proving her spot on Tour since she started out last season!
At the Well Fargo Championship, Rory McIlroy got it done for his first win in nearly 18 months! Rory has undergone lots of changes since he last stepped into the winner's circle including changing coaches and making some swing changes as well as becoming a father to his daughter.
Congrats to Rory and Ariya and great playing to all the pros that teed it up this week! Also great playing to any of you who teed it up this week! I was able to sneak in a quick nine over the weekend, it was fun to play with my dad and sister.
Have a great week everyone! Are you back in school full time? This past week was my first fully in-person 5 day week since March 2020, and I must say it was exhausting.
